An Expat Story

Inna Selipanov is a foreigner living in Helsingborg for a little over 2 years now. Although she is technically American, she considers herself to be a citizen of the world. Being of Russian heritage, she spent the formative years of her adolescence and young adulthood in California. This was followed by a collective 14 years in Germany, between Berlin and Frankfurt, and then came the relocation to Sweden. In all the places she goes, Inna takes her ever-growing family with her. Initially following her husband’s career endeavours, Inna has been on a journey of her own personal and professional discovery. And even though there are many bumps along the way, the journey is far from ended.
